Nyko Guitar Hero Adaptor Cancelled


Well Guitar Hero fans, I hate to be the one to tell you this. But the PS3 Play Adaptor Nyko was working on is no more. So keep the PS2 out so it can hang with PS3 for now.

Citing “limitations in the PlayStation 3 hardware” the company says it has been “prevented from releasing this product with support for Guitar Hero.” Given this hardware roadblock, Nyko reps say that “the product has unfortunately been put on hold indefinitely.”

Earlier this month I got a PS2 to USB adapter so I can use my arcade stick with the PS3, and it works fine. But this adapter only works with PS3 games. Which is fine for me, because I got it for Tekken DR & the upcoming Tekken 6.

    let’s hope someone else steps up to the plate and figures out how to get past the “limitations” that nyko ran into.

    I bought this ps2 to ps3 adapter at bestbuy:
    http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0926INGFS10085642&catid=24378

    It has the ps button, so you can boot a ps2 games with a ps2 dualshock, games works fine with it. I was able to use the PS2 dualshoch with ps3 games also.. You can also boot Guitar Hero using the guitar, but some of the 2 button on the guitar do not work and it makes the game unplayable.

    Humm… I have been waiting for something like this. Twenty bucks dosent sound to bad as long as it works. This thing should have been out when the PS3 was released. Is there BestBuys across the pond?
